So much news, but the battery is dead!

Well, this post is just going to be text since the battery in my camera is "empty", so bear with me . . . a lot has been going on around here.

We were without ANY cable services for a little over 24 hours. It was ugly: no phone (land line), no cable and no Internet. This was the second time in less than 10 days, so needless to say, I was really pissed perturbed. Then to add insult to injury, they changed the scheduled repair service from that day to the next and didn't even have the courtesy to tell me after I sat at home the entire day waiting for them. Pooh to Time Warner Cable. They are number 1 on my s*** list.

The back stairs that caved in have been completed. We didn't have a repairman fix them, he was a craftsman! Honestly, this man really was an artist. There are only 4steps, but it took him 4 days to complete them. Then he took another couple of days to replace some of the planks on the porch that had rotted. They were tongue and groove and the replacement planks were a quarter inch too wide, so he used a hand planer to make them fit - this guy was really old school, and he did a beautiful job. Then he sealed the new wooden stairs and the replaced floor boards and painted them with this neat paint that contains silica (sand) so we won't slip and fall when it rains!

My son and his wife arrived on Friday around lunch time! The 3 of us went to lunch and then went to pick up my grandchildren. We ate at the Wonder Bar for supper (it was Lake Erie Perch Nite) and ice cream from the Village Drive-Thru for dessert! All in all, a perfect day!

Saturday we spent the morning preparing and packing for our stay at the Kalahari Resort We arrived a little after 11 a.m. and went right to the waterpark! We were able to check into our room at 4 p.m., but we stayed in the waterpark until around 7 p.m. went the hunger pangs became too intense. We stayed in a huge suite, 3 queen beds and one king, 2 full bathrooms (one with a jacuzzi tub) and 2 balconies, a full kitchen, 3 flat screen TV's and a gas fireplace! Real, real nice! Unfortunately, in my quest to not forget anything, I forgot the most important thing, my camera! Our 3 granddaughters had an absolute blast. I am paying for it now, as my knees are totally shot. I feel like I need to get one of those scooters We left the waterpark around 2 p.m. Sunday and Aaron + Erica left for DC shortly afterwards. Well, guess that's it for now, as soon as the battery recharges, I'll post a couple of pictures!

I just saw about a month ago the Time Warner Cable has the absolute worst customer service record in the United States! So pooh on them from me too!
